Ezra was handed a life sentence for his injuries, like so many other children. When these criminals are released within 10 years and offend when they are young, they will again date people of child bearing years. The least we can do is protect against other victims.

I think too many sentencing laws remove too much judicial discretion.

Psychologically speaking teens lack the ability to consider consequences prior to making decisions and taking action. This isn't speculation, as there is scientific evidence that support this. Biologically the areas of the brain that are a part of decision making aren't fully developed until later.

If the belief is that adults convicted of violent crimes can be paroled because they won't re-offend, juveniles should also get that chance since they are more likely to change their life path than an adult.

I knew Barb, and to have her beaten by her son while conscious is beyond being eligible for parole . She was so nice and she loved him so much. I do believe some cases should be but not this one
